My approach is integrative, transpersonal and somatic (using Sensorimotor Psychotherapy). This means I use a variety of approaches to suit each client, I acknowledge and work with the body's natural healing ability and the spiritual dimension and I use a body-based mindfulness approach as well as 'talking therapy'. My specialisms are working with trauma, anxiety & depression.
I aim to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore any issues in a completely confidential setting.
My approach is also informed by recent developments in the field of neurobiology; we now know that the human brain can heal, grow and evolve throughout our lifetime (known as neuroplasticity), which gives great hope for the potential for healing and change. In recent years I have also been drawn to energy psychology and energy healing therapies. I am a EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and a Meta-Health Practitioner (using the Meta-Health coaching framework to explore the emotional-body connection in health issues, symptoms and disease). My psychotherapy approach integrates these energy therapies and I also offer them as stand-alone sessions.
I have been working with clients in psychotherapy for over 15 years. I trained in Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. Since then I have qualified in a number of additional approaches, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Mindful Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Matrix Reimprinting and Meta-Health.
I work in private practice in St Albans (Hertfordshire). Please see my website for further information.
My fee is £60 for each 50 minute session.
I am a recognised practitioner with Aviva Healthcare UK Ltd.
